Oxford Tuesday, 24th May

This one’s from the phone on the train home from Oxford to ‘the other place’. Let’s see if my clumsy fingers can manage!

I visited Oxford University Press today with this year’s cohort of Hornby Trust scholars, and today’s message partly reflects that visit.

1. The Oxford Text Checker is primarily intended for teachers who want to check the language level of a text, but students can have fun with it, too. https://www.oxfordlearnersdictionaries.com/text-checker/

2. OUP have an interesting blog https://public.oed.com/blog/ Try this one on The Language of Climate Change https://public.oed.com/blog/the-oed-october-2021-update/

3. Libor Stepanek gave the Thursday plenary at IATEFL in Belfast on ‘EMI: a language teacher’s leap into the unknown?’ Starts just short of 30 minutes in https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=371752408264095&id=100067745029203&m_entstream_source=timeline

4. And, finally, it’s nearly time for the 2022 Hay Festival. Details here of British Council supported free events https://literature.britishcouncil.org/blog/2022/hay-festival-2022/ Bernardine Evaristo, Monica Ali, Fernanda Melchor (who I’ve just discovered) and lots more!
